Look on the sticker in the crack between the door and door sill on the driver side it will tell you your paint color.

More information than you ever wanted to know about Chrysler paint codes:

Chrysler uses three-character codes for paint. In the "official" method, the first character is a model year code for the first year the color was formally introduced. The second character is the general color description; some examples are as follows: A = argent, B = blue, G = green, J = green, R = red, S = silver, T = tan/brown, and so on. The third character specifies the exact shade/hue of the general color in question. In the old days (late '60s into the '80s), the third character was always a number; the higher the number, the darker the shade. Eventually, they began to also use letters for the last character in order to be able to refer to a wider spectrum of colors.

You'll notice I said the above was the "official" way of referring to paint. However, there is also a slightly more informal method which is used in certain situations (such as on modern build sheets and modern fendertags). In this more informal method, the first character will be either a P or a Q; P indicates the primary color for the vehicle, whereas Q refers to the secondary color for a vehicle with a two-tone paint job. If the vehicle has a monochrome paint scheme, then the last two characters of both informal paint codes will be the same. Thus in this case, PS5 and QS5 are two seemingly-different codes for the exact same color.

For even more verbal shorthand, knowledgeable people will sometimes eliminate the first character entirely during quick/casual conversation. For example:

Customer: "I need some touch-up paint for my '99 Ram 1500."
Parts guy: (opening his 1999 paint catalog) "What color?"
Customer: "B3."

Since there was only one B3 color available for a '99 Ram 1500, this answer is sufficient for the parts guy to know exactly what color the truck is, and thus which touch-up paint the customer needs. Make sense? But there would have been no problem had the customer said PB3 instead.


So there is your explanation. I hope someone out there found it informative.
